There was something unusual about Heath Ledger. For some reason, I would often forget how much I liked him, only remembering when I was actually watching one of his movies. His Teen Beat good looks made me want to lump him in with the other teeny bopper hearthrobs, until I saw him in action and the misconception was removed once again. I only watched a handful of his movies–Ten Things I Hate About You, A Knight’s Tale, Cassanova, and Brokeback Mountain–and I was really excited about seeing him in Batman. Every time I saw him, it was like rediscovering something wonderful. He will be missed.
I found myself nodding along with this article. It’s worth a read.
